New data reinforces how crucial AAPI voters were for swing elections this year.
A new analysis from APIAVote of early voter turnout for the 2022 midterm elections shows early voter turnout in the AAPI community increased nationally by 20.4%. Moreover, the number increased to 33% in battleground states.
The increase in numbers indicates the success of organizations like APIAVote with outreach tactics like phone calls, texts and mailers. APIAVote recorded 800,000 texts and 2 million pieces of mail sent to AAPI households across the country.
Raymond Partolan, a National Field Director with APIAVote, said, “This clearly illustrates just how critical of a part of the margin of victory the AAPI community is now playing in elections all around the country.”
